A TEENAGE girl is fighting for her life after slipping from Blackpool's seawall and being found face down in the sea. The girl, thought to be from Cheshire, was on a night out in the resort with two pals when she fell into the water. The alert was raised but when found by an RNLI volunteer crew she was already floating face down in the treacherous, freezing water. It is thought she may have been dashed against the resort's newly-built sea wall by waves and knocked unconscious last Friday evening. Paramedics carried out CPR before she was taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital where she remains in a serious condition with family at her bedside. "She looked in a pretty bad way," said a spokesman for the Blackpool and Lytham Coastguard who also attended the incident.
